    New research confirms that the key measure of a person's health isn't weight, it's body fat.

    Your health is not measured by pounds alone! New research confirms that the key measure of a person’s health isn’t weight, it’s body fat.

    Researchers at the Mayo Clinic recently presented a study that found normal weight people with high body fat percentages (over 20 percent for women, 30 percent for men) may be at increased risk for heart disease and diabetes.

    On Good Morning America they did a cool report on the study with a real woman who’s bettered her body fat percentage by lifting weights. A few months ago, we ran a story about body fat, and after taking this quiz I realized that my own fat-fighting habits weren’t all that great. Ready to cut the fat? Here are a few simple ways:

    Log less tube-time: Watching more than five hours of TV per week ups your risk. Set your DVR to record your fave shows to spend less time sitting (watching commercials) without missing a single episode.

    Eat a salad a day: Even veggie fans often skimp on leafy greens, but munching salads six to seven times per week can jettison jiggle. Find salad toppers you love to encourage yourself to dig in: I go for crumbled goat cheese, walnuts and dried cranberries. Yum!

    Cook at home: Dining out more than six times per week can boost your risk of gaining body fat. That includes lunches! Skip the local diner and pack a salad to do your body doubly good.

    Chill out: Stress is a body-fat booster. Unless, of course, you have an active way to manage it. When tension builds, find an active way to simmer down, such as taking a walk or cleaning your kitchen. No time to exercise? Put on your headphones, shut your eyes and play a favorite tune—whatever you do, don’t reach for that cookie jar!

    Go fish: Eating three servings of omega-3 rich foods, such as salmon, tuna, walnuts or flaxseed may help keep body fat at bay. Sprinkle walnuts or flax on your cereal in the morning, and try canned versions of tuna and salmon in a pinch.

    safi sana,
    pamoja na hayo yote hakuna dawa nzuri ya kukata mafuta kama maji na kutoka jasho
    kunywa maji mengi kadri uwezavyo na jaribu sana kukimbia au kufanya mazoezi yoyote yanayoweza kukutoa jasho

    kwa upande wa maji unatakiwa unywe maji mpaka inafikia kipindi UKILAMBA mkojo au jasho lako kunakuwa hakuna kabisa radha ya chumvi
